to announce. it is very clear that the u.s., france and other western powers don't want to create the perception globally that this is strictly a western action general the arab nation. arab partners are involved. is that role a symbolic role or a more active role where you have jet fighters deployed? of course, it was the arab nations one week ago today that voted to support a no-fly zone over libya. the arab league calling for the u.n. security council to push ahead of the no-fly zone. today here in cairo, we caught up with the leader who voted in the nationwide referendum. the arab league supports the no-fly zone, but he emphasized this is not to be a military action or invasion. no one is talking about invading libya. certainly when you look at countries like france and listen to statements by french president nicolas sarkozy, the rhetoric is different. he suggests attacking targets on the ground. when you look at how the resolution is written up, it leads the possibility of attacks and targets on the ground open. it will be interesting to see how arab nations will react if th
so what can we expect next? joining us live now is doug mcelway. >> he can expect to see bomb damage assessment, that is the next key phase, right about now, sun should be coming up over liba. we're going to get probably realtime pictures of this of the damage there. the military does not need daylight to commence that bomb assessment damage they have night-vision capabilities so they're probable lay come laigt evidence of the extent of the damage right now. we hear from the military it takes six to 12 hours to accumulate that. given the fact first bomb strikes were 3:00 a.m. eastern time, they should be getting a pretty good picture of the extent of the damage. whether or not muammar gaddafi might have been a target himself, we just don't know. yesterday we about an interview with the architect of the no fly zone. he said as long as muammar gaddafi is a component of command and control, he could be phone shallly a target of all of the this, but we just don't know that yet. >> it's great to -- the arab league played a critical role in this, voting in favor of a military action includ
this the crusader enemy is significant. that's the same kind of technology that are used by groups like al qaeda, which is ironic considering that it is gadhafi that says that he is fighting against al qaeda. all day on libyan state television, we've been listening to rhetoric against the west, against the united states, against israel, how that this is a grand conspiracy organized by the united states and israel, that this is a new crusade and that is the language they are using to describe what they call the latest attack on a civilian area. >> pentagon is making it clear that the french are part of the coalition but they're not the attacks that the french made on that he has armored vehicles earlier today was not part of operation "odyssey dawn." it began when the american ships fired the targets . general mccaffrey, how far does this go in crippling gadhafi's ability to inflict violence against his people and against these armed rebels? >> almost no impact at all. i think it does have a psychological impact on the leadership, which i would hope might contribute to some of his support startin
like from what i've seen before look like pieces of a cruise missile. it's hard for us to confirm exactly what sort of weapon or missile this might be. it's also hard for us to confirm anything that we're being told about what this building was being used for. certainly the people we're with here have just gone inside the building. this lady pulling out more bits of debris. what she's saying is look at this. for them this is proof this building was struck by some kind of a missile. okay. this is still warm. and the writing on it says this equipment contains parts and assemblies sensitive to damage by discharge precaution when using and over here it's hard to read it looks like a serial number on the other side. let's have a look over here. hard to know exactly what it is. being shown something else over here. heavy part of something. this is what people here are telling us, showing us is part of a missile system. let me have a look at this. this is from the outside. certainly seen a few cruise missiles before. certainly it has the look of a weapon of a missile about it. again, can
